  • Samsung Says It Plans to Fight Verdict... Aggressively


    Last Friday's verdict against Samsung did little to make the tech giant want to stop fighting Apple. In fact, as of Tuesday morning, Samsung is ready to fight again - and harder than before.

    Although Apple has already been awarded $1 billion in damages (a figure that could triple before the smoke ultimately clears), Apple went for the jugular on Monday by asking for a sales ban on an entire slate of Android-powered Samsung mobile devices.

    The Wall Street Journal confirmed today that Samsung is promising to fight Apple in the U.S. with "all necessary measures." For Samsung, however, such a fight may actually be a fight for survival in the smartphone space, especially if Apple succeeds in achieving a market ban on the Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 AT&T, Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Galaxy S2 T-Mobile, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Galaxy Prevail and Droid Charge.

    Not surprisingly, Samsung will seek to overturn the verdict, "first through post-trial motions with Judge Koh" and eventually through an appeal if it comes down to it. Correspondingly, no one will be shocked during this potentially protracted process if Samsung requests an appeals court to stay a preliminary injunction.

    So how will this saga eventually conclude? For now, even the most conjecture-happy of market analysts and industry watchers are reluctant to weigh in.

      And to the second guy... you are clueless. Apple isn't in any danger. Apple was the innovator, not google. It has ALWAYS been people playing catch up since the iphone debuted...
      That's absurd. 90% of what apple does, it has copied.

      apple stole my soul
      samsung stole my money
      google stole my freedom
      mmi stole my thoughts
      Figure of speech, not meant to be taken so literally. I'm sure every company's stolen something of ours

      Haters continue to hate...it's fair to say both sides agree to disagree...there is "he said this" and "he said that" or that company stole this and didn't innovate that. Really no one has any idea but ppl on here seem to think otherwise. Keep telling yourself and others that you do (when really you don't)

      You prove my point exactly. Apple doesn't play nice. They don't share. Imagine what 'could have' happened if they actually put their OS on, heaven forbid, a superior hardware device like a Samsung. Imagine what 'could have been' if they actually open sourced the OS and let the Dev's partake. The reason Android is so much better is because developers make it so. Stock Android kicks "stock" iOS, if you can even call it that, 10 out of 10. Put a Jelly Bean phone against iOS6 and you lose. Oh wait, it's not even out yet and it still loses. Put the Galaxy S3 against the iPhone 5 and you lose. Oh wait, it's not out yet either, sorry. Yet you still lose. Faster, better screen and open source.

      Siri = OK. Google Now = Kick Siri's butt EVERY time. Oh, and didn't I see Motorola is suing Apple for patent infringement over Siri?

      Actually, yes. I've use an iPhone since the first one five years ago. I've used, jailbroken, unlocked and more on all of them. It was just as choppy as Android when it first came out and got more smooth as the hardware changed, albeit only a little. I think I know what I'm talking about. Have YOU used Android recently? Have YOU noticed how many things are being taken from other OS's and put into iOS4 and iOS5 that have been in Android for years? iOS is boring. It's looked the same since the first generation iPhone. Unless you've used both OS's substantially I think you need to revisit your claim that

      Android is crap and full of bugs and looks and feels rubbish. I would not even use an Android phone if I was paid to. And the Google Nexus is rubbish and ugly. I would rather use a 2G iPhone with IOS 1 than use the latest Samsung Android phone.

      And this my friends is commentary from an ignoramus. I challenge you to truthfully and fairly use a 2G phone and a Galaxy S3 running Jelly Bean and then come back and say
